TORONTO, July 3, 2019 – From the LA riots to the fall of the Berlin Wall, from 90210 to Friends, Corus Entertainment’s Curiouscast network is taking listeners on a journey inside the social, political and cultural moments that defined a decade in a brand new podcast, History of the 90’s.

History of the 90’s is a co-production between Curiouscast and Kathy Kenzora.
“The 90’s is one of the most fascinating decades in modern history. To stop and think about how much the world has changed as a result of that short window of time is truly remarkable. Not only willthis podcast explore some of the biggest moments of the 90’s, Kathy will also take a deep dive into stories many listeners have likely never heard before,” said Chris ‘Dunner’ Duncombe, Director of Streaming and Podcasting, Corus Entertainment. “We are so excited to share this new podcast with Curiouscast listeners.”
